Koireng-led UNLF apprehended two ‘Madams’ and produced them before the media late Saturday evening in Bishnupur district as a part of their move against ‘pimp’ and ‘madam’ in the state considering them as anti-social elements.

The two were caught after one ‘pimp’ was apprehended by village volunteers of Kadangband and produced in front of media through Nupi Samaj on Thursday.

Koireng-led UNLF spokesperson Pibarel Angomcha told the media the outfit has been working for the betterment of the society and that it will start taking necessary action against sex rackets that could doom the society.

Sex racket business will become one of the most dangerous things that could destroy the unique history of Manipur which is 2,000-3,000 years old. It will bring a huge impact to the women of Manipur who are taking a major role in shaping the society, he added.
